Monroe – “Seattle” music video
“She needed a change so she moved to Seattle. She needed to bring a girl she could handle. I don’t know why you thought I would wait for you baby. I’ve been getting high alone ‘cause I’ve been feelin’ solo lately. Replacement is easy, just meet a new girl. She’ll make it look easy then take you to church. ‘Cause God is a woman, she’ll give you her word. She’ll show you the truth and cover the lies as they occur.” – lyrics
‘Seattle’ tells an unhappy tale about a woman who was done badly by her significant other. Apparently, she gave her companion everything she could, but her companion just isn’t into her like that. What she needs is a change, and that’s why her companion moved to Seattle.
‘Seattle’ contains a fading relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The gloomy tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with indie-R&B and hip-hop elements. Furthermore, “Seattle” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Monroe’s upcoming self-titled debut EP.
“You don’t know the things she’s done to get to where she’s at.”
“My aim is to really create something that makes people feel. There are songs I can listen to that make me feel heartbroken all over again and songs I’ll hear that can make me feel like a kid. I don’t want my music to just be a record, I want it to be an experience.” – Monroe stated
Monroe, a self-taught musician, draws influence from Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Usher, You Me At Six, and Tupac. She uses the notorious chopped-and-screwed Houston landscape as a major inspiration for her eclectic brand of layered R&B, hip-hop/rap, and indie music. Also, she’s breaking her way into the scene with an unmatched degree of colorful style and finesse.
“My mom has always motivated me. She came to this country with less than $50 in her pocket and nowhere to sleep. She worked two to three jobs so that I could stay fed. At this point, all I can do is keep working so that I can one day make it up to her.” – Monroe explained
Monroe was born in California to two immigrant parents of Iranian and El Salvadorian descent. She showed an interest in music at a very early age, mimicking her favorite artists on the radio. As a result, her mother bought Monroe her first keyboard, and later, her first guitar. She continues to be a driving force and supporter in Monroe’s life, and her experiences continue to motivate Monroe on her musical journey.
